Design systems and component libraries are key to the scalability and consistency of front-end applications built by enterprises. If your component library isn’t accessible, how do you expect developers to build accessible apps with it? Realistically, you can’t. This talk will cover the goodies and gotchas of building and maintaining accessible component libraries through the lens of Deque’s development of Cauldron React. Building a component library that is accessible by default can’t entirely prevent developers from mistakenly using components in an inaccessible way, however. Learn how axe DevTools Linter can bridge that gap to ensure devs utilize components accessibly.
